i thought vivi was a blm? --Defiledsickness
Vivi is latin for life or alive, as for the ff9 character (taken from the final fantasy wiki):
Vivi is the passive infinitive tense of the Latin verb Vivere, which means "to live", which means that 'vivi' can be translated as "to be living" in English, a possible allusion to the character's constant search for the meaning of his existence.--Telford 06:18, July 20, 2011 (UTC)
In the Voodoo religion, a Vévé is a symbol used in black magic to summon a god or spirit for various purposes. This is a possible allusion to the character's abilities and maybe even his struggle to prove that he is not a "doll" or puppet to do others' bidding.
